One year ago we started this crazy thing we like to call “Potaku”. We never thought it’d turn into what it is today, but here we are! A year older and nowhere near more mature than we should be!
Welcome to another week of Potaku and a very special episode. Why? It’s our one year anniversary! And to celebrate we went to AlexAndHisPants’ house, had a barbecue, ate some cake, sat round a fire and had a chat about the past year, some game stuff and generally were very loud and having a good time! So sit back, relax and enjoy the anarchy that is not only our season finale, but also our Anniversary! Enjoy!
Doc also put together a video celebrating these past few years of friendship and all the shenanigans we’ve gotten up to.
Oh yeah, we’re taking 3 weeks off too, so see you in a few then!
Thanks for listening everyone, hope you enjoy the show and don’t forget to subscribe, rate and share with everyone!

[25/05/2013 9:42:59 PM] welbot: yeah.. I have one in team speak that auto lowers the volume when it detects people chatting (so if I’m listening to music, it quiets the music so I can hear the talking)
[25/05/2013 9:43:55 PM] Platinum Urchin: ahh cool
[25/05/2013 9:44:36 PM] welbot: there’s something similar in skype, but it’s really random 😐
[25/05/2013 9:45:52 PM] Platinum Urchin: ahh have not really looked what skype has to offer
[25/05/2013 9:46:24 PM] Joshy207: I just assume skype doesn’t like my mac because it still runs leapard, so I don’t even bother 😛
[25/05/2013 9:46:49 PM] welbot: lol poor mac users
[25/05/2013 9:47:25 PM] Ben: Hey! We can play Warcraft 3, I’ll have you know!

[25/05/2013 9:48:59 PM] Ben: I mean, that would be pretty impressive if strategy games didn’t eat about 18 flavours of dicks…
[25/05/2013 9:49:49 PM] welbot: Ever played Industry Giant 2?
[25/05/2013 9:50:03 PM] Joshy207: Red alert’s story line is still the best written game
